Local Enterprise Partnerships Start Up Fund

17/05/2011 It’s been a busy week for LEPs, with the Government announcing new measures to support the partnerships. A £5m Start-up fund for LEPs was launched this week which LEPs can bid into to resource some of their initial activity over 2011-12. This is a change in direction - the first time cash has been made available from central Government for LEPs to employ staff. The deadline for bids is 30 June. The Government has also published a list of contact details and information for LEPs to use when engaging with government departments and other public bodies on economic development issues.
